History: 

The thirteen artists participating in Artefact 2004 – Urban Sculpture are Monique Bertrand, Martin Boisseau, Ani Deschênes, Doyon-Rivest, André Du Bois, Lucie Duval, Raymond Gervais, Michel Goulet, Neva-Gotthilf, Daniel Olson, Yannick Pouliot, Alan Storey and Louise Viger. Their artworks were installed along the carriage road, Chemin Olmsted, between the Centre de la montagne — near the 1964 symposium — and the large chalet at the lookout. Some works were imposing, others more discreet but all were presented as imaginary places likely to appeal to visitors.
